You may hardly recognize us. But you’ll be even more aracted to us. We’ve made big changes to Meydenbauer Center. But they’re more than just cosmetic. We’ve added areas and breakout rooms to encourage face-to-face conversations, and audiovisual capabilities to help presentations come to life. See for yourself. Go to meydenbauer.com and tour our renovated space in the heart of Bellevue today.


Summer 2016 Dear Bellevue Downtown Reader, Bellevue is known as the “City in a Park” and the best place to start exploring is right here in Downtown. This summer we’re heading outside and taking full advantage of what this beautiful city has to offer. Bellevue Downtown Park, Ashwood Park and Meydenbauer Bay Beach Park all offer tranquil getaways to stroll, picnic, relax and exercise without ever leaving the city. Add these to the many outdoor dining experiences and open-air events, and there’s plenty to see and do as the sun sets later. We invite you to join in on Bellevue’s many 4th of July festivities. In Downtown, you’ll find a full day of merriments for the whole family—dogs included. Read more on page 4. Don’t miss the Bellevue Strawberry Festival (July 2526) staged only a few minutes by car or transit from Downtown in Crossroads Park. This beloved summer tradition, produced by the Eastside Heritage Center (EHC), celebrates many aspects of Bellevue’s rich history. Learn more in this issue from EHC’s Executive Director Heather Trescases.

Speaking of traditions, this city loves to plan. The question often becomes, so then what will we actually do? A major visioning and design effort is in the works, called the Grand Connection. Read about the recent design charrette and where this landmark project may take you in years to come.

From the charrette we saw the power of design and how it can open our eyes to innovative possibilities. We’ll see more creative works from artists from around the world for the Bellevue Arts Fair Weekend July 29 through July 31. As an amateur poet once wrote, “There’s more to see, more to do. Much more to love with a beautiful view.” We look forward to seeing you out-of-doors and enjoying the very best of this ever-changing city.

B Downtown The Grand Connection: Key to Bellevue’s Identity BY MATT JACK Great cities are renowned by identifying structures. Paris has the Eiffel Tower, San Francisco has the Golden Gate Bridge, and even our neighbor, Seattle, has the Space Needle. As for Bellevue, it has a beautiful thriving Downtown area unique to itself, and after years of growth, the City is planning to create a sense of identity with the Grand Connection. The Grand Connection was formally launched as part of the Wilburton commercial area land use study last December. The Jenny Kordell and Brie pose with prior years’ Grand Doggie Marshals.

Looking for the next Grand Doggie Marshal

current plan aims to connect Lake Washington at Meydenbauer Beach Park to the Eastside Rail Corridor in the Wilburton commercial area by extending through Downtown Bellevue.

BY GERI MASSENGALE Last 4th of July, Brie the dachshund won the hearts of many and became the 2015 Grand Doggie Marshal for the Bellevue Downtown Association’s (BDA) Four on the 4th Dog Jog & Walk. Every year, the BDA hosts a contest to find the next Grand Doggie Marshal to lead the pack in the start of the 4k. Participating in the

Breaktime-Mealtime Helps Kids in Poverty School is drawing to a close and while many kids and teens are fantasizing about camping, swimming and enjoying the summer break, some are wondering how they will get their meals. Last year, more than 118,000 meals were provided. To address summer hunger, more than 400,000 meals are needed. In the Bellevue School District, one in five kids are living in poverty. These kids count on free meals provided at school to maintain healthy nutrition, but during school breaks, they’re on their own. That’s when the Breaktime-Mealtime program provided by Bellevue LifeSpring steps in and provides boxes of nutritious food for families to take home. The boxes also include grocery store vouchers to purchase fresh items like meat,

The Strawberry Festival is the only event of its kind in Bellevue – blending history with modern-day entertainment, activities and experiences. It brings the community together for some old-fashion family fun, and has become a kick-off to summer tradition for the entire Eastside. What’s new at the Festival this year?
